Howard Brown, a student at the Reykjavík International School, recently came second in an international film competition hosted by the American foreign service for his film about his daily life in Iceland.

With the prize money Howard bought a package of Lego, gave some of it to his brother, and then donated the rest, ISK 70,000 (USD 600, EUR 450), to UNICEF Iceland’s emergency fund for Gaza children.

UNICEF Iceland reports this on their Facebook page and thanks Howard for his generous donation. 

Correction: In the original version of this article, we incorrectly stated that Howard was a student at the International School of Iceland.
